The info text in bin/configure for {MailerContrib}{EmailFilterIn} states: "You can use this expression to - for example - filter email addresses on your company domain, or even block use of raw emails in WebNotify altogether (just make it something that will never match, e.g. ^notAnEmail$)."

However, with the LocalSite.cfg line:
$Foswiki::cfg{MailerContrib}{EmailFilterIn} = '^notAnEmail$';
I get stderr output on the cron job that runs tools/mailnotify :
$+ matches null string many times in regex; marked by <-- HERE in m/                 
                    (^notAnEmail$+ <-- HERE )                        
                    \s*$/ at /var/www/wiki/lib/Foswiki/Contrib/MailerContrib/ line 347.

mailnotify once again performs as expected when I substitute the pattern ^@@notAnEmail

This is either a documentation fix, or a regexp fix. I'll leave that determination to folks who are familiar with the code.

Updated the documentation to use your suggested match, and added a unit test that demonstrated the original problem and confirms that your suggestion works. Thanks!
